Donovan said: “I am thrilled to dive into the exhilarating role of Frank ‘n’ Furter with a fantastic new cast and Timewarp with audiences throughout the UK.

“We promise to deliver the freshest Rocky EVER, that audiences will not forget. So, buckle up, as the show promises to be a wild and wicked ride!”.

The story – if you didn’t know already – follows Brad and his fiancée Janet, whose car breaks down outside a creepy mansion whilst on their way to visit their former college professor.

There they meet the charismatic Dr Fran ‘n’ Furter, and other colourful characters including Riff Raff, Magenta and Columbia.

It features a beloved soundtrack which includes “The Time Warp”, “Dammit Janet”, “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” and “Sweet Transvestite”.

The Rocky Horror Show has been seen by over 30 million people worldwide in more than 30 countries and translated into 20 languages.
